CSA – Community Shared Agriculture
Some of you may know what it is, most of you may not. It’s hard to get people to sign up to be a share member of a farm when they don’t know what they are getting into. As a CSA Shareholder you get fresh produce (or whatever type of CSA farm it may be). You are basically advance paying for a season of fresh veggies. Most CSA memberships come with a warning that say you may not get produce if unforeseen circumstances arise but with the YYC Growers CSA that Dirt Boys is supplying this year, we have 8 farms on board that will be growing for you, not just one.
Dirt Boys is planning on supplying some great produce such as Radishes, Collards, Carrots, Beets, Potatoes, Zucchini, Corn Salad, Kale and much more. With our other YYC Growers like Leaf & Lyre, Hillhurst Microfarms (with who I shared a table at the market last year), Seed + Soil, Greenberry and newcomers Salad Spinners and Grand Trunk Veggies we should have much variety in each and every CSA bag you pick up.
Please head over to the YYC Growers and Distributors CSA page for more information.
Hope to see you this summer picking up your share!
